Confluence label/rank Index is broken


currently I have a problem with the label index in a Confluence 3.5.16 Installation.

By using the TagCloud Macro I recognized that label (or rank) index isn't working anymore. I got this exception.

Rebuilding the index or restarting the server didn't solve this problem.

Is their a way to get this fixed?

Thx in advance,

This problem is solved. There was a tag spelled "km4103t:3Akm4398t" in a space.

This one caused the NULL-Pointer Exception.

Deleted and being happy.
